Londoners are in the midst of a solar revolution. A new solar bridge is being built on the roof of Blackfriars Railway station in the heart of London.
Blackfriars Bridge will have over 6,000 square meters (64,583 sq.ft.) of solar panels, to take care of half of the station’s power needs. This will make it the biggest solar array in the city and the world’s largest solar bridge.
The bridge will feature over 4,000 high-efficiency Sanyo HIT photovoltaic panels and will span the River Thames This project is part of an upgrade and redevelopment for the new Blackfriars, which was originally built during the age of steam in 1886.
